Imperial Assault Set

indysharkindyshark Member Posts: 1,466 Arc User
I really like this ground set. The armor and shields are great and the weapons rock. I have a few questions;

1. Is the set account unlock? I can't seem to claim it on my other toons.
2. How do you claim it on other toons?
3. If you equip the set on one of your bridge officers, will they spawn rift bombs? (since they will only have 3 pieces, not 4)
4. Do the Borg adapt to the bat'leth?

    1. should be acct unlock...could be wrong.
    2. i would venture in the event store maybe? this is a good question. (even though this is not winter or summer event) maybe in the cstore or someplace where you can click a reclaim tab...
    3. if that requires all 4 pcs, then id say no. (i dont have the set yet)
    4. i would say yes.

    in answer to #1 and #2:

    Yes they are account unlock. However (as with all events) the first claim (from the event tab itself) only works once.

    For reclaim, including on other characters, go to Event window, ignore the tabs.... down below the tabs there is a "Reclaim Rewards" button (lower left corner) which opens a menu, then go to "Ground Equip" tab in that menu. The new items are on the top of the list.

    And FYI the items cannot be reclaimed if they are already present in your inventory or on your captain... but CAN if you have them equipped on a BOFF.

    skipping #3 as I do not know.

    in answer to #4:


    Yes, because it is plasma damage, not physical or kinetic damage.
    (The Borg non-adaptation is based on damage type, NOT melee vs. ranged.)

    #3: No. BOFFs won't use non-standard skills and abilities, which includes bonus skills from sets. The only exception is for automatic procs like the one attached to the Na'kuhl temporal operative shield (which will trigger *for you* and not them).

    or more accurately BOFFs won't use active abilities (aka ones you have to activate to work) due to how their AI is coded, while passive (aka ones that are always active if you got what grants the ability) work though there can be some strange interactions there due how those abilities are coded.

    It is account-unlocked. I claimed it on one of my others just fine. It comes boxed up, like the ship set. You claim each box, open them and equip.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    So we can only claim it once? So we can't put it on each bridge officer and Captain? I was able to do that with the Terran Armor and its levelless.

    Each piece is probably classified as a "unique" item, meaning you can only have one of it.

    Per westmetals after claiming the set just move it to a boff then repeat until everybody who wants a set has it with your Captain being last in line.

    You CAN claim it, equip it on a boff, then claim it again. You can repeat this process until every boff AND your captain have the gear equipped.

    The whole 'unique' thing just makes reclaiming for the rest of your roster more tedious than it needs to be. Either it's unique, and I can only ever have a single set of it, period, or it's not unique and I can freely claim and equip it across all of my bridge officers.

    Does the bat'leth have a lunge or is it like most of the other bat'leths and lirpa and not follow the target like the nanopulse mek'leths do?

    The Nanopulse Mek'leths DO have a lunge - though it's more like a charge and strike - on all three attacks, just like the swords or Bat'leth of Overcompensation.​​

    I know the Mek'leths have it, what I was wondering is whether the new Bat'leth does. I am getting a bit tired so I may not have phrased the question clearly.
  • keepcalmchiveonkeepcalmchiveon Member Posts: 2,315 Arc User
    if you mean this set, yes it has it. the video i watched showed the toon lunging towards the target.

    I can confirm the imperial Bat'leth does cause you to run towards your target, the same way a sword does.

    It also has unique animations as it's used with one hand with flashy, spinning moves, more fitting of a lightsaber.

    And as a result, I'm disappointed it doesn't have the "screwdriver lunge" animation. That and also the fact it doesn't ignore shields, once again killing the main appeal of the impractical, rooting melee weapon combos.

    You know, I use the 4 piece Revolutionary Space Set and had gotten those dancing Elachi occasionally. However, now I also use the 4 piece Imperial Assault Set on that same Character (Discovery Klingon Recruit) and they are appearing every time I beam in somewhere. I really hope after all the complaints of trolling by the Devs before, that they didn't add the same silly stuff with the Ground Set as well.

    I have had the dancing Elachi every time I used the spore gun and sometimes when I didn't fire it up to a week or two ago, now they are there every single time regardless of whether I fire the gun or not. I think the patch did something in general to cause this, not the new ground set itself (which I should be getting later today).

    As far as I can tell, it's an invisible buff, and buffs only count down while you're online and in the appropriate kind of region -- space zones for space buffs, ground zones for ground buffs. If the character in question isn't played enough on ground maps, the buff will take a long time to expire. And I'd imagine most of us don't spend a lot of time in ground zones.

    as nice as they are all my KDF toons and boffs are equipped (or will be) with the weapon from the omega set with the grenade launchers. not super-effective but really really fun
